Mary's Crazy 9 Patch for Kaitlynn

Mary has made several of these Crazy 9 Patch quilts for her grand-children. She likes to add their embroidered name in the border.

But this one is different. Mary's neighborhood was hit very hard during the recent Witch Creek fire. She lives in a small gated community of 12 homes. When the fire hit, it took the houses of six of Mary's neighbors. Nobody knows why the fire stopped before it got to Mary's house. Her neighbors lost everything. The phones and electricty in their tiny community were out for a long time. When the electricty was restored, Mary tried to get back into a normal routine. She made this quilt for KaitLynn. It is made with pinks and browns. The border is brown.

I used Warm's Soft and Brite poly batting. The thread is Signature cotton pink in the feild and the bobbin and Java brown on the border.

No comments:

My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
